If you make a Dihybrid cross, I got approx. all fry will be normal body size (unless Giant id a dominant trait, then they will be mostly larger), and since both HM and HMPK are recessive genes, you'll probably have co-dominance and end up with a bunch of HM and Delta.

well if we're going to talk about it - your username is not very appropriate for this forum. and the way you type is very hard to read.

as for your question, I'm sure it's been done. You'd likely end up with 1/4 or 1/2 giants

Yes that seems to be correct. I'm not positive if Giant is a dominant or recessive gene (because it's so new), but I would just breed the biggest ones you have if you're going for a Giant HM.
